Radisson Blu Caledonien Hotel, Kristiansand

Reviewed 28 October 2017

The hotel is going through very much needed renovations-everything is dated.
Unfortunately,due to this work there are limited breakfast options(go to another hotel or eat and go in your room) ,the building work also spoils the view.

Room Tip: the higher the better for the views

Hotel itself had very friendly staff, but the room was dated and the bathroom was in dire need of renovation. Obviously it's going through some construction work at the moment seems to be sorely needed. Expensive for the quality of the rooms however.

First booked for 2 nights but stay longer for 1 night despite the construction on the building. I love this room with big windows. House keeping works well everyday. The receptionists are always nice and helpful. Food are ok. We feel at home on this hotel. Give time to considerate the construction building, this happens in all hotels specially if they want to make it better. So don’t mind it. Location was perfect in the center. Easy access in the area. I love to stay here with my family.

Yes, the hotel is being renovated but it is still a Blu with all that the brand implies.

We were not inconvenienced at all by any noise or smell from the work in the building. The only downside was that breakfast consisted of premade sandwiches, pastries and limited fruits. That was no biggie for us.

Service was up to Blu standards, which means excellent. The room was clean and comfortable.

Our only real issue was the quality and stability of WiFi and connection to the Internet.

When we come back to Kristiansand, we will definitely come back to the Caledonien.

Really needs to be renovated. We have used this hotel for the last 3 years becouse of the colorline trip to denmark. And sleeping here is like sleeping on a boat. Aircondition is very old and fussing all night loong. The breakfast is better this year so thats good.
